It's that time of year when we reflect on the people and memories we are grateful for. Old or new, all Mimes and Mummers have a great Collins memory. Was it your first encounter at the club fair? The first time you wandered up the Yellow Brick Road to the Oz that is Collins and met those wizards we call the Mimes? Or that time you sat in your room working up the courage to audition for the spring musical?
Throughout my grade school and high school years, I used to love Christmas Break. But once I got to Fordham, I actually longed to be back with my Mimes family and start work on the spring shows as soon as that New Year’s ball dropped.
The 2017 Mimes will be performing Pippin and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. (If I register for a course, do you think they would me audition?) We look forward to telling you more about these productions in the new year.
In the meantime, have great and safe holiday season. As you warm your heart with memories throughout the coming month, we hope you will remember a Mimes moment and all the great friends you made and loved in Collins Auditorium.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Tod Engle, FCRH ’79
